Sverre Bjertnæs is considered one of the leading contemporary Norwegian artists today. He himself often refers to his body of works as a fragmented ʻstream of imagesʼ collected from art history, vernacular culture and his own life.
This authoritative monograph on the artist features his oeuvre from the 1990s to the present day with more than 200 illustrations. The book presents the full range of Bjertnæs’s works, covering painting and drawing as well as sculpture and the tableaux installations he developed in later years. Bjertnas embraces the conceptual approaches of photorealism as well as merging figurative and abstract painting and the use of new media.

With contributions by Joakim Borda-Pedreira & Knut Ljøgodt, Jan Åke Pettersson and Cecilie Løveid.
